For instant gratification ( )try Bloomberg TV. Futures are on the screen 24/7, including during commercials. I usually check prices before I even get out of bed.
To the original question, I usually get about 5-7 hours. It's not for lack of tiredness or worrying too much ... basically noise is the culprit. Airplanes, sirens, ... gunfire (ok, not so much the latter). I definitely notice I trade better the more sleep I've gotten.
I check on the iPhone. It's always a stressful time in the morning. And in 10+ years there have only been a handful of times I've woken up to an unpleasant surprise.
More sleep is better. It's more valuable to be more efficient during the day then working longer.
